The Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, Brankica Janković, opened the traditional manifestation “Three Borders without Borders” in Priboj, organized by the women’s association “Let’s Save the Village”, in which singing groups competed in performing original songs and among which there are many girls and boys – guardians of tradition from Serbia. Montenegro and Republika Srpska.
This was an opportunity to talk to women at the premises of the Church of the Ascension of Christ, where members of numerous associations presented their domestic products and handicrafts. “Women are an exceptional potential for the development of society, and women from rural areas are a treasure trove of knowledge and skills accumulated through centuries. That is why it is important to support such events which, through the message of equality, show how much we can do together, as the name of today’s event does – ‘’three borders without borders’’. It would be good for such manifestations to acquire a regional character, because in that way economic potentials are developed, experience is exchanged, but culture, tradition and customs are presented as a very important segment in the development of the society. There is no successful economy, which is not accompanied by cultural development and preservation of tradition, Commissioner Janković pointed out.
The event was attended by the President of the Municipality of Priboj Lazar Rvović, the President of the Municipal Assembly Boris Mrdović, MPs Dijana Radović and Stefan Srbljanović, Bishop of Mileševo Atanasije Rakita, representatives of the Ministries of Agriculture and Trade and the civil sector. In the competition part, the best singing groups with original singing, various handicrafts were presented and Lenten pies from the best stand were selected.
